Everything you need to know when you use our website to advertise your property.
CAN I SELL MY PROPERTY PRIVATELY?
Yes, we are a property portal business marketing your property on a large number of sites. We advertise your property professionally and can provide you with contacts and assistance that may help in the process of selling or buying a property.
DO YOU CHARGE A COMMISSION FEE?
No, we do not charge any commission. There is a small initial fee to list your property on our site and we then list it on other sites to maximise your exposure. You do not pay us any other fee during or if you are successful with a sale. This can save many thousands of euros enabling you as the seller to reduce your price giving you a much better chance of attracting more buyers.
DO YOU VISIT THE PROPERTY?
WHAT ARE YOUR FEES?
We have a range of fees that offer flexibility for the seller starting from as little as £59. We also offer an ‘A VENDRE’ board for you to display on your property if you wish. This gives your property even greater exposure.

Depending on which advertising package you decide upon we list your property on a large number of high ranking property portals. We market your property for buyers in the UK and France, and offer with our premium package the opportunity for you to advertise your property attracting interest from countries such as America, Australia, Canada, Russia, Germany and Holland to name but a few, as we know that it is very important that as a private seller we maximise your property exposure by using a large number of high ranking websites that attract world wide interest.

IS THERE A LIMIT WITH THE TEXT AND NUMBER OF PICTURES I CAN ADD TO YOUR WEBSITE?
We have no limit on text detail and various packages provide the option for a different number of pictures. We require pictures sized to 640 x 480 and when adding please upload and save individually by selecting the ‘save’ green button, this makes the adding of details easier as may produce an error message when large numbers are uploaded in one batch. Good detail about your property and local area and services are always helpful for a buyer. Please note that pictures need to be added in the order you wish them to be displayed when using a mobile or tablet, with a desktop or laptop you are able to rearrange the order.
You can also add a link to a website of your property if you have one on Private Property Sellers Ltd. This may not be available on external listing websites.

WILL I SELL MY PROPERTY VIA YOUR ADVERTING?
Our marketing is achieving sales for a large number of our clients, as we provide your property with some of the best global exposure. With both positive feedback from sellers and buyers, the option of a private purchase is increasing in demand. One of the most important aspect when marketing privately is the price, if you’re advertising with an estate agent, there is no point in advertising privately at the same price as the agent listing as buyers will be seeing the same property price. Make sure you are advertising at the correct value for the market, it’s not necessarily about what it cost to buy and renovate. The agent may tell you the price you want to hear to get you to advertise with their company, but that may not be the correct valuation, but slow or no interest means you’ll be reducing it. If you need to see what value property is selling for in your area contact us for details. Also good picture, detailed description, but not too long, key points and highlight features.
If your property is in a good location to display an ‘A Vendre’ board this can also attract interest related to your listing on our website.
We can’t guarantee a response, and would be cautious of anyone who makes these sorts of guarantees for your listing, but we can guarantee that listing your property with us will put it in front of a huge market of potential buyers from anywhere in the world so hopefully as it only needs one person, that person is out there waiting to see your property!
